Thursday night saw dueling presidential fundraisers in Barack Obama's hometown.The full story is HERE.
For Democrats, investment icon Warren Buffett was in town raising money for President Obama. On the Republican side, presidential candidate Mitt Romney attended two fundraisers Thursday night. Both were sold out, raising more than a half-million dollars.
Asked Thursday night for his thoughts on a new CNN poll pegging him as the frontrunner in four key states, Romney said it was "better than the alternative".
"I think it says something when you've got the candidate for President of the United States, coming to the home state of the current president and sells out," said Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford, also Romney's Illinois State Campaign Chair.
At the first event in River North, Romney took the stage and addressed more than 300 supporters.
This event was hosted by Susan Crown and her husband William Kunkler. To attend they event, it would have cost $25.000.00-a-person. And no, the comma is not in the wrong spot.
If the video movement of the camera makes you dizzy, just close your eyes and take in the speech. Enjoy!
BTW, just think of all the money you saved:
